Anything But Mute

This being human is…
A never ending bellow in the night
Though winter melts without a cry
And spring is welcomed with a sigh
It never asked for anything
But arrived Challenge is to write a metaphor poem beginning with “This being human is”

  3. This poem is bigger on the inside. We want, we cry out, but the world does the right thing at the right time.

    Nice to be reminded, no matter the calamity, seasons come and go in their time year after year.

    It is a wonder to me, how Mother Earth rolls out her seasons, no matter what.

    I agree with Sarah, this poem is bigger on the inside! I can almost hear the ‘never ending bellow’ which is softened by the hopeful sigh.
